Scarborough Forum

Scarborough Event Poster
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 6:00pm

Design is an evolving, evocative creative process permeating all aspects of social, economic, and political life, and it is shifting the way our city operates and functions. With human-centred values and diverse perspectives, advocacy, and calls to action and equality, we are collectively and individually changing local neighbourhoods, and the larger social and physical fabric of Toronto, often with design as the catalyst. As we approach 2020, Design ManifesT.O. asks that we reflect on how we as citizens have made or hope to make change happen in order to build community and turn forgotten and 'non-places' into vibrant spaces. How can design and allied arts support community based place-making? How can we channel creative practice to address challenges of the next wave of social, demographic, and technological change in our city.

Design Wo/ManifesT.O. 2020 is a series of forums and interviews that are being organized throughout the six boroughs of Toronto. Join the conversation by attending a forum or submitting your own story of change making, community building, or place-making using the submission portal on this wesite.

Scarborough Mycological Foray

Sunday, September 23, 2018 - 11:00am to 2:00pm

Led by Diane Borsato, Amish Morrell, and the Mycological Society of Toronto's Alan Gan, this informal, family-friendly foray in the Highland Creek Ravine at the University of Toronto Scarborough will provide opportunity for participants to collect and study wild mushrooms, and enjoy nature.

The walk will begin from the Doris McCarthy Gallery promptly at 11 am and will go forward rain or shine. At 1 pm, the group will gather with Borsato, Morrell, and Gan to identify and share information on the mushrooms collected.

Please dress for the weather, wearing good walking shoes and pants you can tuck socks into (for avoiding scratches/insect bites if going off path). Please bring a basket in which to collect the mushrooms, and a folding pocket knife to cut them. Additional recommendations can be found on the website of the Mycological Society of Toronto: https://www.myctor.org/forays/foray-etiquette

This program is free and all are welcome, no registration required. Please note that while not difficult, the path to the ravine from U of T Scarborough is uneven terrain and quite steep in parts.

TAKE THE BUS! Free shuttle bus departs OCAD U (100 McCaul St) at 10 am, returning at 2 pm, first come, first served.

Venue & Address: 
Doris McCarthy Gallery, 1265 Military Trail, Scarborough
